Is there a reliable way to find out when and where a movie that's too old to be in first run theaters but too new to be airing on cable and/or streaming will be available to watch? Example inside.

We missed Haywire when it was in theaters. Via Amazon, I can see it will be available on DVD and BD here in the states in May. Barring searching the schedule for each cable channel, I'm having a little difficulty finding out if/when it will be broadcast or offered on demand in the interim. Is there a trick for quickly looking this up that I'm missing? Like a site like Moviefone or Box Office Mojo but that covers what channels and services have the broadcast, streaming, etc. rights to new movies that have finished their theatrical runs? Or a magic search string that works every time?
